Vikrant Massey said, “I’m going to take each day as it comes. I want to be nimble and think on my feet, so I can adapt.

Vikrant Massey and Sheetal Thakur married in 2022 and their son was born on February 7, 2024. A couple of weeks later, the new parents announced their son's name, writing on Instagram along with a family photo of the three, “Nothing short of a blessing… We named him Vardaan!!!”

Vikrant Massey's family

Vikrant Massey, who recently won the Best Actor Award in the Critics category at this year's Filmfare Awards for his performance in Vidhu Vinod Chopra's 12th Fail, has been in the news because of his statements about his family, including his elder brother Moeen. 

In a recent interview with Unfiltered by Samdish, Vikrant shared that Moeen converted to Islam at the age of 17. Vikrant also said that while his father is a Christian, his mother is Sikh.

The actor had said, “My brother’s name is Moeen, I am called Vikrant. You’d wonder why the name Moeen? He converted to Islam, my family let him change his religion. They said, ‘Beta (Son), if you find satisfaction in this, then go ahead.’ He converted at the age of 17, it is a big step. My mother is Sikhni, my father is a church-going Christian, he goes to church twice a week. From a young age, I have seen a lot of arguments related to religion and spirituality.”

Vikrant was last seen in Vidhu Vinod Chopra's 12th Fail, which revolves around UPSC aspirants and is based on the real-life experiences of IPS officer Manoj Kumar. He will next be seen in The Sabarmati Report.
